    Hey guys, what are the do's and don't of white jeans? And before someone says "don't: wear white jeans" I already thought of that [​IMG]

    You could take up polo.

    EDIT: Now that I look closer, is he actually holding a credit card???


    I'm pretty sure its a subway ticket or a ticket of some kind. Either that, or he's a full grown midget who takes impeccable care of his skin.

    Didn't James Bond sport a pair in a few scenes in QoS?

    Wear them like you'd wear a pair of white/khaki trousers, both in terms of outfit composition, and fit.

    Very nice, PSGus. +1 to PhatG. And see maomao67 (or some other numbers). He's worn them well w/ medium brown and medium blue plaid jackets.

    Agree. I can't pull off white jeans myself though. Just can't.

    He looks incredible for a 4-year old. Where did you find that?

    I have no idea. It's a bigger picture but I cropped it and blew it up a little bit to see the details better. He is, however, my sartorial hero.

    Bond's wearing Levi's Sta-Prest in a bone/ ivory color. Not white. I thought it looked like he was wearing dark brown suede Desert Boots with them.

    I actually prefer the very light bone/cream color jeans to pure white.

    If most people would say they are white at first glance, then come back to realize that they're the very light cream color when compared to bleach white... I know I've found my perfect "white" jeans.

    Here ya go! Today in Sheung Wan (Hong Kong) [​IMG] Last Sat night outside my hotel in Causeway Bay (Hong Kong) [​IMG] 2 weeks ago in Singapore [​IMG] Sydney - a few months ago (winter) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Columbus Circle (NYC) - Winter [​IMG] Central Park (NYC) - Winter [​IMG] Outside "Balthazr" (SoHo NYC) - Winter [​IMG] Me & my ex (NYC) - Winter [​IMG] On a plane [​IMG] Me & my ex NYE Sydney, Australia 07/08 [​IMG] So.. I say you can wear them in summer & winter.. Just treat them as if they wear blue jeans Wear them with RM Williams (suede preferably), blue loafer, red loafer, brown loafers & even cognac coloured cap toes.. Get the idea? Very versatile That should be enough for now..

    This toddler looks horrible. Shame on his parents. I would never let my 6yo out like that.

    Just curious, Wongo do you like women?

    As phat guido has shown, the genuinely stylish can make white jeans looks great.

    Another example of how they can work with winter attire:

    This is perhaps the grown-up version of what that small boy is wearing so well.
